What the Passover said to the Israelites, the gospel continues to say to us: there is hope and comfort for us, sinful as we are, not because of anything that we can do or have done, but because God is gracious and kind in His covenant. All that the law requires, the gospel gives in Jesus. And how do we receive this gospel comfort? It is by faith alone. Just as Israel had to act on faith in putting the blood of the lamb on their doorposts, we too as the people of God must embrace the promises of God by faith.
